The Down East Journal (04/13/13)

Apr 10, 2013

  Tuscarora descendants from New York state and eastern North Carolina honored their ancestors at a recent ceremony in Snow Hill.  This week on the Down East Journal, we talk about the Battle of Nooherooka fought between settlers and the Tuscarora people in the 1700’s.  And, a great strawberry season is just around the corner.  We speak with growers in eastern North Carolina about a pesky virus  stunting some plants growth and how little impact the problem will have on yield.  Listen for theDown East Journal, Friday at noon on PRE, Public Radio East.  Catch the rebroadcast Saturday at noon on PRE, Public Radio East, News and Ideas at 88.5 WZNB New Bern, 91.5 WBJD Atlantic Beach-Beaufort, 90.3 WKNS Kinston- Goldsboro, and 88.1 in Greenville.
